Supporting Unblocktober

Prospect Connect is happy to be a part of and supporting Unblocktober – led by Lanes Group

Unblocktober is a month-long campaign during the month of October. If you’re interested in joining in and helping save our sewers and seas, all we ask is that you commit to putting none of the items or substances listed below down the drain or toilet:
  • Cooking oil – pre- or post-cooking
  • Margarine
  • Cooking sauces and condiments
  • Food – even crumbs
  • Wet wipes
  • Tampons, applicators and wrappers
  • Sanitary/menstrual pads and towels
  • Nappies
  • Condoms
  • Cotton buds
  • Contact lenses
  • Bandages and plasters
  • Razor blades
  • Dental floss
Michelle Ringland, Head of Marketing at Lanes Group, said: “When fats, oils and grease (FOG) such as the above are poured down the drain, they collect in the sewers and begin to harden into big congealed masses – commonly known as ‘fatbergs’ – that cause serious blockages. Lanes Group itself works on between 400-600 fatberg-related drainage issues each month, including the ‘monster’ Whitechapel fatberg in 2017, which weighed 130 tonnes and was 250 metres long.”
To sign up to take part, visit www.unblocktober.org and simply fill in the form on the website. You’ll then be sent a free resource pack that gives you all the information and advice you need to successfully complete Unblocktober!
